Scott Cairns has carefully preserved every poem he's ever published, that he cares to preserve. He's also added previously unpublished work, spanning three decades. A careful introduction by Gregory Wolfe and a tribute preface by Richard Howard make this the ultimate collection of Cairns's work.

"Among American poets of religious belief at the present time, none is more skillful, authentic, or convincing than Scott Cairns." -- B. H. Fairchild, poet, National Book Critics Circle Award winner "With Dostoyevsky and the psalmists as his traveling companions, Cairns pursues his peregrinations through frustration and pleasure, desolation and eros, step by step realizing 'how / fraught, how laden the visible is.' -- Kimberly Johnson, poet, author of A Metaphorical God
